Is it my imagination, but does it seems like Florida's problems predict those of the rest of the USA years later? Think of the real estate crash of 1926, 3 years before the larger stock market crash. Look at how overpopulation has devastated the environment and is highlighting the economic woes to come. See the political problems that mirror problems of the coutry as a whole. Look at how uncontrolled immigration has overwhelmed Miami and see how the divide between rich and poor has grown. South Florida ran out of buildable land just as the rest of the country will. Florida's economy is now unsustainable as the rest of the country will eventually be. No wonder then called Miami "the magic city" it predicts the rest of them!

Oh man, I hope not!! I read about a lot of what you people are going through in South Florida and hope it never ends up that way where I live. Maybe we can learn from some of the mistakes so it doesn't happen all over the country??
